The new kid on the block in the arena of desktop 3D printers is the Titan 1 printer which has been brought to the market by Kudo3D. The company which was started in 2012 by Tedd Syao has created its first product by the name of Titan 1.
Titan 1 is a user friendly desktop Digital Light Processing (DLP) Stereolithography (SLA) 3D printer. Printers having the DLP technology have been gaining popularity in the past few years. The projector shines on the surface of a liquid plastic resin that becomes hard when it is exposed to light of certain wavelength. The light draws and hardens layer by layer until the entire model is made.
Some of the features of the printer are as follows.
- Build volume of the Titan 1 is 7.5″W x 4.25″D x 9.5″H (19.2cm x 10.8cm x 24.3cm)
- Resolution of the machine is 37μm to 100μm on the X and Y axes and 1μm on the Z axis
- XY resolution of 25μm and
- Z resolution of 300μm
- Speed: 1.3 – 2.7 in/hr for of 100μm
- Material: Photo Resin
- Technology: DLP-SLA with PSP
The price of the machine is predicted to be $1,999 which is quite an affordable price for a 3D printer that can save time. The company hasn’t given any clear indication as to the price of Titan that has been predicted is for the assembled one or the kit form. The resolution and the promises that have been made by the creators are tempting but nothing can be said until the machine is tested.
